Hi friend,
Welcome to Health Care Magic

     Frequency and precipitancy of urine needs investigation – you need to check urine, sugar, Kidney and Prostate.
     Do an Ultra Sound Scan of abdomen – Kidney, Bladder and Prostate (including residual urine and prostate volume). Get examined by UROLOGIST – for Prostate problem which is most likely from your description.
     Do Lab tests - urine routine and culture / blood tests –CBC, ESR, CK, Kidney function, PSA, Blood sugar- fasting and 2 hours after 75 grams of glucose.

Metoprolol helps in Blood Pressure, Mitral Valve Prolapse and Anxiety (tension, sleep problem).
Alprazolam helps in Anxiety
Atorvastatin helps in cholesterol – it can cause muscle pain, especially in higher doses. The pain could also be from your anxiety. If it is very troublesome, you can change it to a fibrate.

Take care
Wishing speedy recovery
God bless
Good luck

Eagerly awaiting for your answer. i am non medical common patient.

You are right in withholding arthritis medications - just need to follow up.
     Rectal examination, Ultrasound of prostate (bladder & kidneys), Urine routine (& culture), Blood urea and PSA (prostate Specific Antigen) will be the minimum – for proper assessment.
     It will be better to do urine culture before starting antibiotic. One from the class of Fluoroquinolone or Cephalosprin is generally given – they are prescription medicines and you should discuss with your GP.
What you have written before is a very good presentation - tell the same thing to the Urologist

All the best
